We have ContextListener implemented ( i.e. our class implements javax.servlet.ServletContextListener)

Am trying to obtain the user id and I have ServletContextEvent object available as parameter for contextInitialized

Right now it is hardcoded.

The same username is obtained in JSP like this

      <jstl:set var="userId" scope="session" value="<%= request.getRemoteUser() %>"></jstl:set>

Is there anyway, I obtain the same from JSP, as I need the value that is being set there
